Past Winner: Chromat

Two years ago, we developed a creative campaign for NYC body-wear brand, Chromat. The brand’s first-ever ad campaign, Chromat Pool Rules, received 205 million social impressions (with no paid media), coverage in 50 publications world-wide, an increase in sales of 38%, and overwhelmingly positive social engagement. Check out our case study video below and some of the media buzz it received here or here.

We can’t wait to see how we can top it this year.
